Give as you Go

The spirit determines everything we do, from the quality of our work to the way we act as a company. We’re lucky to be surrounded by a group of team members, homeowners and community members who are just as passionate as we are. This group of givers is willing to Give As You Go™ - to do what they can, when they can.

If you give a little, you get a lot.

- Virginia Watson, Hayden Homes Founder

Hayden’s Mother, Virginia, was a strong woman that inspired others through her generosity to be at your best, each and every day. Virginia saw each person as an individual and believed that every person was worthy of love. She believed that we should live in a world where we GIVE more than we get.

Lessons in generosity and compassion came early in Hayden’s life. For Hayden’s Mother, Virginia, grew up during the Great Depression, and she shared many stories of how “out of work” men would stop by their house and ask her mother, “Do you have any work, Ma’am?” and Hayden’s grandmother never turned them away, instead she’d give them an job; stacking firewood, cleaning the yard or fixing a broken pipe and their payment was a homemade sandwich, a smile and genuine care.

For us, homebuilding is really a springboard that allows us to do so much more. Like giving deserving families a hand up on the path to homeownership and giving great jobs to great people. The communities we build are full of everything you’d expect: streets, parks, playgrounds, quality affordable homes. And what you can’t see… what we pride ourselves on building, is a sense of community. A group of people banding together to build something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

From our 30+ years of experience building homes we’ve learned an important lesson that goes well beyond floor plans, 2x4s and square footage. But it has everything to do with who we are today.

We exist to Give As You Go™, so together we build a strong community, and lead fulfilled lives.
